Release notes

Synopsis:          New Parallels Virtuozzo Containers 4.0 tools update provides
                            fix related to EZ templates management functionality.
Issue date:        2010-08-04
Product:             Parallels Virtuozzo Containers 4.0
Keywords:         'EZ template'

1. What's Included in This Update

The new packages for Parallels Virtuozzo Containers 4.0 provide user-level tool
fix for managing EZ templates using the 'vzpkg' utility.

2. Problem Description

The new packages introduce the following feature:

- The ability to disable installed application EZ templates auto-detection.
  By default, when packages are added to Container or removed from it, 'vzpkg' analyzes
  the installed packages set and, if this set includes all the packages necessary for some
  application EZ template, marks this application template as installed
  to the Container. Sometimes this behavior is inconvenient and it is desirable
  to have a simple way to disable it.

All Parallels Containers 4.0 users are advised to update their tools packages.

3. Affected Components

 - 'vztt' is a set of tools used to manage EZ templates. EZ templates introduced
   in Virtuozzo 3.0 are more flexible and easier to manage compared to standard

4. Obtaining Update

 You can download and install this tools update using the 'vzup2date' utility
 included in the Parallels Containers 4.0 distribution.

5. Installing Update

 Use the 'vzup2date' command to install the new Parallels Virtuozzo tools

 The update does not require Parallels Containers restart or system reboot.

6. RPMs required:

 The following RPM packages are included in the tools update:
